Kate Heads Downton

It’s safe to say that the servants’ quarters of Downton Abbey will be rife with excitement as they are due a visit from the Duchess of Cambridge herself.

Kate will be meeting Julian Fellowes, the screenwriter of the cherished period drama Downton Abbey, as well as cast members Maggie Smith, Hugh Bonneville and Robert James-Collier who play Lord Grantham, Thomas Barrow and the respectable Dowagger Countess.

The Duchess will visit the set of the servants’ quarters, kitchen and working area at Ealing Studios despite most of the exterior shots of Downton being shot at Highclere Castle in Hampshire.
